  • Former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have signed a multi-year deal with Netflix to produce original shows.
  • The conservative backlash on social media has already begun.
  • Some are threatening to cancel their Netflix subscriptions over the news.
  • It’s not the first time: In March, many conservatives were outraged when former UN Ambassador Susan Rice joined Netflix’s board of directors.

Former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have signed a deal with Netflix to produce original TV shows and movies, and the conservative backlash against the streaming service has already started.

Though Obama associates have said it’s unlikely for the Netflix programs to be overtly partisan, there are still plenty of people who have taken to social media to voice their displeasure with the news – even threaten to cancel their Netflix subscriptions.

It’s not the first time Netflix has faced conservative backlash like this. In March, Obama-era UN Ambassador Susan Rice joined the Netflix board of directors. Some subscribers were outraged because of inaccurate statements Rice made in 2012 after the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has also been critical of President Donald Trump in the past. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Hastings endorsed Hillary Clinton and said that “Trump would destroy much of what is great about America.”
